Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/4 10% I Dreamed of Africa (2000) It's neither epic enough to fulfill a grand scope, nor intimate enough to be an overpowering emotional experience. ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Jul 23, 2014
3/4 78% Summercamp! (2007) Summercamp! maintains a gentle, lackadaisical tone that eloquently captures the triumphs and traumas of this ageless ritual. ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Sep 14, 2007
B- 72% Runaway Jury (2003) The movie is skillfully paced by rising director Gary Fleder and has all the usual Grisham touches: big issues, broad characterizations, tense showdowns and a swelling bounty of twists and clues. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Oct 22, 2003
C+ 34% Wonderland (2003) The film is so truncated, so obsessed with style and composed of so many self-contained episodes that it fails to say anything new. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Oct 16, 2003
C 44% Good Boy! (2003) The script is on autopilot and even the voice work feels phoned in. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Oct 13, 2003
B 82% Matchstick Men (2003) An uneven but engagingly quirky comedy-drama driven first by character, second by plot formulas, Cage is surprisingly convincing despite seeming at first like the wrong choice. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Sep 15, 2003
D+ 23% Bulletproof Monk (2003) The film's only distinction remains Chow. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Apr 19, 2003
C 14% Chasing Papi (2003) A loud, frantic mess, a movie that wants to be a screwball farce but is simply farcical and screwy. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Apr 16, 2003
C- 39% Agent Cody Banks (2003) Muniz and Duff have a huge following, but they're at the service of endless Meet Cutes and a violent finale that could easily be dubbed 'Explosion Parade.' ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Mar 14, 2003
C+ 34% Bringing Down the House (2003) Jason Filardi's broad script is an uneven hodgepodge of culture clash, screwball romance, urban crime drama and sitcom. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Mar 6, 2003
D+ 9% Darkness Falls (2003) A joyless amalgam of horror movie cliches. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Feb 6, 2003
B- 80% The Wild Thornberrys Movie (2002) Never more than an extended TV episode, the originality of its heroine and messages merit a recommendation for families seeking slightly more thoughtful animated fare. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Dec 23, 2002
F 22% The Hot Chick (2002) A comedy that surpasses stupidity, and not in entertaining ways. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Dec 13, 2002
D 65% Jonah - A VeggieTales Movie (2002) The pandering, sappy script misses ample opportunities for satire and never brims with enough material or ideas to sustain the picture's 85-minute running time. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Oct 3, 2002
57% Road Trip (2000) Although lively at times, the proceedings are far too perfunctory to generate a 'can-you-top-this' quality. The result is a film that knows some of the words, but not the music. ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Jan 1, 2000
48% Me, Myself & Irene (2000) Me, Myself & Irene is one of the most daring, pungently funny and wholly original American comedies in ages -- and one of the silliest, too. ‐ Seattle Times
